I have been impressed with the boats advertised in terms of apparent configuration and relative price ranges. I will be looking at one tomorrow....and should have additional information, still interested?
Any reason you're dredging up every old thread on Slocum43s and reviving them? It's really annoying and poor manners, and not particularly useful, given that most of the people involved in the threads haven't been active in years. Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet. You'd probably best off doing a google search for the boat and owners group. I'd also add that Owners groups of relatively uncommon or rare boats are usually not formed, since owners groups need a minimum o fusers to be viable.
